. thanks for joining us. 9/11 nine years vilater. here is the view in new york city right now at this moment. the familiar tribute in light snell synonymous with ground zero, symbolizing the fall in towers of the world trade center and serving as a silent reminder of the nearlypeople who died in the terror attacks. earlier in new york at the pentagon and at a quiet field in pennsylvania, solemn ceremonies marked the moments when hijackers took control of four airliners and took aim at american's political and financial capitals. the nation has changed in many ways since then. some of the change is obvious. others more so. we start with this morning's gathering of families and loved ones in manhattan, clutching photos and fighting back tears. newyork fell silent at 8:46 a.m. and again at 9:03, the moments when two jets crashed into the twin towers. acre moment reminiscent of the one that dawned nine use ago. the area remembers a construction senite full of equipment and full of grand plans for a fitting memorial. >> leeann @ lehr. >> daniel thomas awfully tough. >> what has a b

on the southwest side of the city with that story for us. >>> good afternoon. the superintendent of police says despite all of the speculation, that he has to remain focused on doing his job. now, at a dedication here at new calmica academy on the southwest side, mayor richard m. daley defended weis' performance and defended his superintendent saying that he is doing a good job. now the "sun-times" report says that weis knows his days are numbered. >> i don't know who is spreading that rumor. you get a lot of blah spread every day. this man came in and did the job that was necessary. in regards to another generation of young men and women in the police department and the caps program and everything else that he has done. he has done a very, very good job and i'm proud i appointed him. >> with superintendent jody weis in attendance, the mayor praised the head of the chicago police department who faces labor trouble, a disheartened police force set to march in protest to headquarters and controversy over a recent meeting with gang leaders. weis drew fire from critics who say that his face to face
the mosque there and of course, muslims do not want us to burn the koran. the imam has agreed to move the mosque, we have agreed to cancel our event on saturday and on saturday, i will be flying up there to meet with him. >> reporter: well, the pastor's claims about imam rauf seem completely at odds with what the imam said on a television interview last night. >> the spiritual leader behind the so-called ground zero mosque claims not building it is now a matter of national security. imam rauf says if that opponents have their way, forcing the project to be moved or abandoned that would only inflame muslim radicals and endanger american lives. >> our national security now, it hinges on how we negotiate this, how we speak about it and what we do. >> he says had he known the project would have generated such opposition he would not have proposed it in the first place, but now, it's too late. >> if we move from that location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse. the headlines in the muslim world will be that islam is under attack. >> reporter: opponents suc
on over an hour. the term wide ranging is going to be used a lot. >> how about long-winded. >> we had a ton of topics, the first focused on the economy, one or two on the pastor, and more on the growing phobia with islam around the country. i would say he was most passionate at the end when he made a case for the right and religious freedom and for the rights of muslim americans to have the same rights as everyone else in the country. the passion he showed there was probably greater than he answered on any other question. frankly it's interesting. he mixed it. it was passionate and mixed in with patriotism in a way even some of his critics on this issue will say it was a very eloquent answer to say the least. >> in contrast to that, let's see what his passion, quote, unquote, was, when talking about stimulus and job growth. let's watch. if you want the same kind of skewed policies that led us to this crisis, republicans are ready to offer those. if you want policies that are moving us out, even though you're frustrated, change isn't happening as fast as you would like, then i think de
joins us with the latest. >> charges are pending against female driver of the car. this was quite the scene last night. you can see the aftermath of what happened. the debris here in front of the keren restaurant here in adams morgan. the bay window of the restaurant was smashed from impact. authorities are trying to piece together how this happened. the sound of this white car crashing into the front of this popular ethiopian restaurant echoed throughout this busy section of adams morgan. >> a lot of squeaking and tires hitting the curbs and the glass flying. not a pretty scene. >> witnesses watched with horror it is a female driver of the car lost control, ran on to the sidewalk and hit two women before slamming into the restaurant. the two pedestrians, who are in their 20's, were transfered to the hospital with serious injuries. officials say the driver refused to be transported to hospital and was irate as she was being handcuffed. >> coming downtown the speed she was, there was no sense to it. >> the crash happened just before 9:00 on wednesday night. restaurants packed with
this battle is costing the u.s. economy tons of money. >>> plus, you know rick sanchez as the outspoken host of cnn's "rick's list" but did you know he was once an impoverished refugee? i've read his book, we'll talk about it live. >>> and an electric car that goes 307 miles an hour. i know you're not interested in going that fast on the highway any time soon. but the technology behind the buckeye bullet could help build our future cars. i'll talk about that, as well. >>> but first, defending religious freedom in this country continues to be a hot issue. there is an emergency meeting under way right now in d.c. an interfaith meeting. it is a meeting to talk about this growing islamaphobia in this country. we're bringing you that in a moment. but i want to bring you back to why this is an issue. and it all goes back to the proposed construction of a mosque and islamic center near ground zero. this is the property that's being looked at. it's called park 51. that's the project. it was an old burlington coat factory. we talk about it as being -- or some people talk about it as being at ground z
. joining us now from the north lawn of the white house austin goolsby the president's adviser. the president was pretty critical of john boehner in his speech in cleveland. boehner sfas the president is serious about finally focusing on jobs a good start would be taking the advice of his recently departed budget director and freezing all tax rates coupled with cutting federal spending to where it was before all the bailouts, government takeovers, and stimulus spending sprees. he is referring to peter orszag the budget director during the obama administration who wrote a piece in the "new york times" this week for the next two years keep tax rates including for the wealthy exactly where they are right now. >> look, i think representative boehner is a little confused about what peter orszag was suggesting and threw in on that second bid let's go back to the final bush budget of 2008 as if that were the gold standard we wanted to return to when in fact that was the final culmination of exactly the policy that got us into this mess. >> to be precise peter orszag was not recommendi
with no because i'm not. if god told us to do it, then i guess he could tell us to do something different. >> this morning, general ray ordeearno also expressed his concern of american troops if this burning takes place. >> i think there will be some backlash and i think we have seen some already. >> kerry sanders is in florida. this church, if it tries to burn the koran, it would be violating an ordinance, right? >> yes. the city has an ordinance, not related to burning of korans, but just burning anything in your yard. they have a field here and the ordinance is rather specific. it allows, for instance, kids to go camping and have a little camp fire in their yard. but, it has to be twigs and branches. the city police department says that they have interpreted the ordinance that if they were to burn the books that the ink in the koran would be a hazardous material and, so, what they're planning to do is if they decide to come out here and burn the koran as they say they're going to do on the anniversary of 9 /11 the gainesville fire department will be on alert. if they try to spark it, t
department has put u.s. embassies around the world on alert, ordered them to review their security before any violence against america erupts. and the fbi reportedly is collecting information about the plan to burn the koran. officials may have no power to stop it, given jones' constitutional right to free expression. president obama lambasted jones' plans with a reminder about america's fundamental beliefs. >> i just hope he understands that what he's proposing to do is completely contrary to our values as americans. >> and politicians from both ends of the spectrum slam the plan. sarah palin called it an unnecessary provocation. senator john mccain begged jones not to do it via twitter. but a group known as the agenda project has released a video accusing them of stirring out fervor with their own fight against a planned mosque near ground zero. and that fervor may be growing. the fbi is investigating vandalism at a phoenix mosque. blamed a fire in tennessee on an arsonist. hartford, connecticut was planning to allow local imams to give a muslim prayer at the start of the council meetings,
. this was uncovered by us first and suzanne kennedy is live with the latest. >> the mayor is 5 days out from this election and virtually the only issue that he was questioning this morning was whether his campaign paid people for their some people claim they were promised jobs paying $100 per day if they voted for the matter. voters cast their ballot but the jobs and money never materialized. workers at campaign headquarters yesterday said they had gotten many calls complaining about this. they said there were no jobs to offer. here is what the mayor had to say that . >> [no audio] >> he had to say that there were not specific details about it and in regard to who was the campaign worker came toward and asked -- and gave them that information that he would deal with it. he says training is given to their employees. the mayor said this is absolutely a practice that is not accepted and illegal. as for the vincent gray campaign, they said this is a widespread practice and they are calling for an fbi investigation. >>> we will continue to follow that story throughout the day. in other news, two
enemies are al qaeda and their allies, who are trying to kill us but have been -- have killed more muslims than just about anybody on earth. you know, we have to make sure that we don't start turning on each other. and i will do everything that i can as long as i am president of the united states to remind the american people that we are one nation under god and we may call that god different names but we remain one nation. >> as you know, he has tried to have this outreach to the muslim world. he is frustrated some of that hasn't worked out because of so much suspicion out there but also interesting that after he said look we are all one nation under god he quickly added, i use my christian faith to get me through as president. no doubt a reference to the fact that he's conscious of the fact there are some of these polls suggesting that some americans think he is muslim. he very clearly slipped that in there amid this conversation about islam. i'm a christian. >> it was also, i thought, the most clear message from the president this go round when he said before i said this clearly, i thou
